Why Allah (s.w.t.) Gave Us the World

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Sayyidina Abu ‘Amr ‘Utsman ibn ‘Affan (r.a.) said, “Allah (s.w.t.) Gave you the world so that you may seek the Hereafter through it.  He did not give it to you for you to become inclined to it.  The Hereafter is eternal.  Do not allow the temporary abode to make you reckless, and do not let it preoccupy you from the eternal abode.  Give preference to the eternal over the temporary.  The world is certainly to come to an end, and the Destination is certainly to Allah (s.w.t.).”
